Papercraft

Papercraft in it’s multitude of forms is one of my oldest hobbies.

I’ve done origami, kirigami, built kusudamas and various polyhedra, but my major interest now lies in 3d papermodels.

Latest build | Corrupted Cosmonaut

Corrupted Cosmonaut – papercraft model, my build.
Model by: GLOOD PAPER TOYS
Difficulty: ★★☆☆☆ (2/5)
Time: an hour at most

Another astronaut papertoy in my collection!
This one was created for Paper Jam 1: A Fungus Fighters and is interesting in several aspects:

  • Interesting construction technique – single piece is converted into desired shape by clever use of flaps and folds.
  • Paper toy comes with a story and a puzzle to solve – you can discover a password to unlock additional papertoy and another part of an accompanying story!

I loved the puzzle – it proved to be challenging enough and I had an interesting discussion with papertoy author about clues and my journey to the final solution. While I guessed right away where the password was hidden, I had trouble getting an actual word. I managed to find all the clues and finally got this decoding right.
It was a great fun!

Custom model by: kuzzzma
Other credits: vector art by Vectorbox Studio via Vecteezy
Difficulty / Сложность: ★★☆☆☆ (2/5)
Paper / Бумага: 120gsm or higher, I prefer 160gsm
Time / Время: 1 hour / час

This is my first time customizing Paperized Crafts template and I’ve decided to create papertoys of most recent Christopher Nolan’ film Tenet main characters – the Protagonist and Neil.

I’ve modified original Paperized pattern for more streamlined assembly – rearranged some flaps, added extra body piece – as a “body gap” in original always bugged me. Also hands construction was changed a bit (for same reason). So, here are some photos of finished figures and a brief “How-to” instructions.
